This volume presents ten preliminary reports or outlines of new research relating to contacts between ancient Egypt and the Near East. These discuss: two ancient Near Eastern temples with bent axis in the eastern Nile Delta; 2003 excavations in a palace near `Ezbet Helmi which revealed Aegean-influenced Egyptian wall-paintings; the chronology of `Chocolate on White-Ware' from the Levant; the occurrences of the Cypriot ceramic Base-Ring Ware at Tell el-Dab'a; the identification of pumice and volcanic ash from archaeological sites in the eastern Mediterranean; the significance of the Crown Goddess in the Early Dynastic period; a very recently discovered letter from the archive of Ramses II; the first appearances of Kamares Ware in the Levant; foreign Egyptology in Egypt; the depictions of the Battle of Kadesh at Abydos. Three of the well-illustrated papers are in German, the rest in English. The introduction is in both languages.
